Our aim is to demonstrate that renewable energy doesn’t have to be an expensive, heavily subsidised replacement for fossil fuels. We anticipate that every megawatt of wave device capacity will cost less than £2.5 million for equipment and installation costs with an estimated life cycle of 20 years. This compares very favourably with wind turbine power generation where a standard offshore turbine will cost around 3 million per megawatt and has an operating efficiency (capacity factor) considerably less than that achieved by the Seatricity wave devices. The modular nature of our design enhances resilience and reduces the cost and complexity of maintenance.

Bob Tillotson
Founding Director & CTO
Bob is a highly experienced mechanical and civil engineer. Throughout his working career Bob has run major engineering projects in various countries. During this time he has allowed himself the odd interruption to pursue international sailing adventures. In recent years Bob has devoted his talents and inventive skills into renewable energy; specifically wave power and harnessing the energies of the ocean. The Seatricity ‘Oceanus’ device is his invention. For the past 4 years he has been responsible for the successful development of the technology from prototype to the point where the latest full sized version is now undergoing extensive testing, and will shortly be readied for full commercial deployment.

Peter Mitchell
Founding Director
Over the past 35 years Peter held a variety of international positions in the oil industry initially with Gulf Oil Corporation USA and latterly with The Vitol Group as a senior partner. In that time he has travelled extensively, lived in a number of countries and managed oil businesses in Europe, the Middle and Far East and Africa. The opportunity to invest in Seatricity arose 3 years ago when he became convinced of the global potential for wave energy and the benefits and unique strengths of Seatricity’s technology. He has taken an active role as a Director and after a lifetime in the oil business is happy to be considered ‘poacher turned gamekeeper’ as wave energy gains momentum.

Andy Bristow
A distinguished career in the British Army saw Andy promoted to become one of the Army’s youngest Brigadiers. He subsequently cut his commercial teeth as a Director with Inmarsat Plc; building a track record of successfully advising Government clients around the world of the potential and benefits of adopting cutting edge technologies. He may be well known and effective in Whitehall but he is at home in Cornwall, living with his wife near Liskeard. He is passionate about the natural potential of the South West, and Cornwall in particular, and is well placed to help unlock it to the mutual benefit of Seatricity, the Cornish local economy and UK’s exploitation of marine natural energy solutions.

Sebastian Perry
Sebastian joined Seatricity as an intern in April 2015 and has stayed with us as a Management Trainee. He has a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from Plymouth University. In parallel with his work at Seatricity, Sebastian is continuing his education at Plymouth University by studying part time for an MSc in Marine Renewables. Sebastian originally hails from Dorset but he is a keen surfer and therefore more aware than most of the latent energy waiting to be harvested from the ocean's waves.

  • If we adapt existing technologies and make them cheaper and readily available and improve efficiency we'll only be half way there. We don't know which solutions will work in the future, but we know that if we put our best minds behind it we'll discover what works. There is no direct correlation between the amount of money and what comes out but the likelihood of finding solutions faster goes up.

    President Obama
  • I think all of us believe that climate change is one of the biggest challenges we face. We need increased government research and private investment. We need to move to sources of energy that are even cheaper than the hydrocarbon energy we used today, must be clean and plentiful.

    Bill Gates
  • “Let’s just imagine for a moment what we would have to say to our grandchildren if we failed. We would have to say, it was all too difficult. They would reply, what was it that was so difficult when the earth was in peril? When the sea levels were rising in 2015, when crops were failing, when deserts were expanding, what was it that was so difficult?”

    David Cameron
  • “We ourselves feel that what we are doing is but a drop in the ocean, but the ocean would be less because of that minute drop”

    Mother Teresa
  • “Catch a wave and you are sitting on top of the world”

    The Beach Boys
  • “If wave power offers hope to any country, then it must offer hope to the
    United Kingdom and Ireland”

    David MacKay
  • “There are huge challenges facing governments across the world today, and one of the most important of all is how we meet our growing energy demands in a way that protects our planet for our children and grandchildren”

    David Cameron
  • "If we could produce fresh water from salt water at a low cost, that would indeed be a great service to humanity, and would dwarf any other scientific accomplishment"

    President John F. Kennedy, 1962
